Managing MiFID II Order to Transaction Ratio (OTR) Compliance

Market participants face increased venue scrutiny and reporting of the ratio of unexecuted orders to transactions (OTR) posed by MiFID II RTS-9. The threat of fines or suspensions for exceeding venue-specific limits are meant to prevent disorderly trading conditions.

The traditional compliance approach – after-the-fact, manual review of venues’ end-of-day reports – is slow and costly. As such firms are demanding a more proactive approach.

Corvil Intelligence Hub delivers actionable insights to improve intraday management of OTR-related compliance risks. Leveraging live trading order lifecycle data and advanced analysis, Intelligence Hub provides venue-aligned calculation & measurement of OTR that enables proactive oversight and predictive alerts to manage risk more effectively.
